What is Facial Fat Grafting?
There are several options to refresh the face and treat lost volume and contours; however, fat transfer to the face is growing in popularity due to its natural-looking results and lasting benefits. Lost volume, commonly due to aging, is usually most noticeable around the eyes, jawlines, and cheeks. Facial fat grafting can be used to minimize some of these more common signs of aging by restoring plumpness to the face by smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face using your natural fat. Typically, fat will be harvested from areas, like the "love handles," hips, or abdomen. Plastic surgeon Dr. Heath Charvet will then carefully apply the purified fat into the desired parts of the face, like the cheeks, lips, and below your eyes, for beautiful, symmetrical, youthful results. With fat transfer to the face, you don't just get a more youthful facial appearance, but you also improve the contours of your body.

"Dr. Charvet performed a breast reduction, liposuction, and fat transfer in December 2021. My first consultation he spent 45 minutes (or longer), I came with a long list of questions that he honestly answered. In that time, I knew that he was a perfectionist and would do an amazing job! He made me feel comfortable and I trusted him completely to help me make the best decisions for my body. The results are amazing and definitely exceeded my expectations. Being in healthcare myself, I understand the importance of the patient, not just the procedure. Dr Charvet puts the patient at the forefront of his practice. After the procedure he was available at all times to talk and answer any questions or concerns I had. I cannot express my gratitude enough! Thank you Dr Charvet for giving me the feelings of confidence that I have not felt in a very long time! M. Moreau"- M.M. / Google / May 03, 2022
"Couldn’t be more pleased with my results so far! Dr Charvet took the time to consult with me about what I wanted and gave me exactly that. I had a Mommy makeover (lipo, tummy tuck with muscle repair, fat transfer to breasts and hips) This experience has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve regained my confidence and my core strength! Since surgery, I’ve been back for laser hair removal, Botox and lip filler. The staff and Dr Charvet care about their patients and are always available to answer any questions. I’d 100% do it all over again and will be a repeat patient for any future procedures."- R.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2022
How is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?
Facial fat transfer at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa is a two-part surgery that includes fat harvesting and injection. To begin, Dr. Charvet will use liposuction to extract fat from a predetermined area. The fat is harvested, processed, and then prepared for injection. Dr. Charvet will inject the fat into your skin over a series of injections to create symmetry. Following your fat transfer, your incisions will be stitched before you're sent to a recovery area. Dr. Charvet or a member of his staff will apply wound coverings and compression garments before you are taken home by a friend or family member. Follow-up appointments should be scheduled so Dr. Charvet can evaluate your recovery and results. Your recovery will vary, depending on how much fat is taken and transferred, but it typically takes a few weeks. Initially, you may have swelling and bruising in your treatment areas, but that will dissipate over time. You may notice some improvements immediately; however, it takes several weeks before you will be able to see your final outcomes. With good maintenance, your improvements can last for many years.
